Logo File Formats
EPS & AI Vector Logos
Use EPS format logos for any professionally printed piece (digital or traditional press applications). EPS files are vector, so they can be scaled larger and smaller without losing quality. EPS is the preferred file format for use in print, banners, and merchandise such as stickers and mugs. EPS and AI (Adobe Illustrator) format logos are supplied by request only.

RGB logo files are provided in JPG file format and are used for all web, desktop, and on-screen applications such as PowerPoint and Word documents. These JPG format logos are never used for high-resolution printing, and they are never scaled to larger sides.
Use PNG format logos when transparent backgrounds are required, such as for websites and when placing the logo on a background that is not white.
